Depay has scored 21 goals in 31 games so far this season, and has also attracted interest from both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur so far this season. However, United remain firm favourites for the player’s signature.
The World Cup star was one of Van Gaal’s key players as he led his side to the World Cup semi-finals last summer, where the pair eventually lost out to Argentina.
Van Gaal wants Depay to help lead his Premier League title challenge next season, as he prepares to spend another £150m on upgrading his struggling side.
